Mimicfish at Crystal Bay, Bali

Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Crystal Bay

Location: Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 5 - 12 metres (16 - 40 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)

Rating: ***

Located on the south side of Gamet Bay, southwest of Nusa Penida there is another bay with rocky island in the middle of it called Crystal Bay. Descend directly down to the reef top at 5 to 10 metres. There is a white sandy base to the reef, covered with anemones and soft corals. Following the north side of the bay into the corner, at a depth of 12 metres there is a cave which opens to the sky that has bats asleep in it. Most of the time there are reef sharks inside the cave. From the bat cave continue following the wall (the reef is not particularly rich) looking out for lobsters that have made their home in the hard coral. The bay is vulnerable to swell, creating up and down currents. When the current is present there is the opportunity to see white tip sharks, leopard sharks, mantas and eagle rays.
